Performance Racing Industry

Back in April, I was contacted by Performance Racing Industry magazine for a quick phone interview on the auto industry and the future of motorsports and more specifically regarding drifting. I've now completed 4 seasons traveling with the Formula DRIFT series as their official public relations manager and have seen the Series grow from year one. I've also managed a few clients that are direct sponsors of the Series as well as been a sponsor of the Series (while at Speedwell Footwear) so I can safely say I'm a bit familiar with this emerging motorsport. I do not claim to be an expert in all things drift, but I have grown to be more than just a fan. Only time will tell if drifting is a fad or here to stay, but I truly believe it has a bright future and with similar attributes to action sports and even MMA from the excitement of a live event, personality of the stars, and style factor and it may well be the future of motorsports.
